The #LHandSign Lupus Awareness Flash Mob Freeze in LA is going viral and you can help share. But here is a brief inside look from my point of view.
Mat asks me to get involved and help. I say yes. Together, we text back and forth and arrange to do a location scout. Once in Hollywood, we find the perfect pre-freeze place to meet and then Mat starts snapping pictures. I hear snippets of "the song" and get excited.
Next thing, I know I am in WDC's radio studio and on the air sharing the #LHandSign Lupus Awareness Flash Mob Freeze with his radio listeners. It's all a blur because I was off to Washington, DC to go to TEDMED!
Here's the YouTube of me on the WDC radio show... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHqESoK5L1Q
Then on Sunday, April 28th shortly after 11AM the Lupus community of Southern California gathered for the Lupus Cloud Meet Up and at NOON for three powerful minutes in front of The Chinese Theater in Hollywood, there was silence as the #LHandSign Lupus Awareness Flash Mob Freeze happened and then Mat Simpkins, of RunningforLupus.com and creator of the #LHandSign blew the whistle and we hugged and then made our way to California Pizza Kitchen for the "after party" benefitting The Purple Rose Foundation.
Thanks to everyone who came out in LA and to you who I know by now is thinking I want to "Put my L up!" so go ahead and take a picture posing with the #LHandSign and share it online. Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, show your support for Lupus Awareness.
